On Sunday, June 16, 2019, Shirley Thomas Wilson quietly answered the call of our Heavenly Father from labor to rest at her home in Easton, Maryland. Born on April 24, 1956, she was the daughter of the late James W. Thomas Sr. and the late Catherine Brummel Thomas.
At an early age, Shirley became a member of St. Paul United Methodist Church, where she learned spiritual and religious teachings under Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Woods. She also sang on the youth choir.
Shirley was a graduate of St. Michaels High School. She later entered the workforce working for several private families, Black & Decker, Talbot County Public Schools and Stepping Stones Children’s Center.
Shirley’s hobbies included playing cards, bowling, watching the Young & the Restless and listening to good music. She was a faithful member of the American Legion Blake-Blackston Post #77 Ladies Auxiliary.
